Is the place Waterloo or Waterlöw?

Most Germany fans know who Joachim Löw is. He was Die Mannschaft’s coach from 2006 to 2021 and played nice football for the most part of his reign, culminating in Germany winning their first World Cup as a unified nation.

Things have gone downhill after the 2017 Confederations Cup win, with humiliating exits in the 2018 World Cup group stage and in the Round of 16 at Euro 2021 and resigned after the latter. He has since been replaced by former Bayern Munich coach Hansi Flick, but “Jogi” might be in action again with Belgium.

According to a report by Niewusblad Belgium (as captured by Twitter account @Footballogue), Löw joins ex-Tottenham Hotspur and Paris Saint-Germain coach Mauricio Pochettino and former Chelsea FC and Marseille gaffer Andre Villas-Boas in contention for the spot vacated by Roberto Martinez following Belgium’s group stage exit at the 2022 World Cup.

I will say now that my favorite coach that is available right now is Sean Dyche, formerly of Watford and Burnley. I watched a lot of his interviews and had a good laugh out of it! On Ben Foster’s “FozCast”, they got Sean on the show and I was surprised to see how down to earth he was which made me respect him even more (he even got Burnley to Europe at one point and masterminded ending Liverpool’s long unbeaten-match run). See Sean on the FozCast here:
